Truffles / Promotion

A 2 track crossover jazz single (7m 46s) — released December 2nd 2016 on Deep Heads

Ash Walker is back people!

Here we have his latest single – 'Promotion' and 'Truffles', taken from his critically acclaimed album, recently released on Deep Heads entitled 'Echo Chamber'.

Support on the singles leading up to the album has been nothing short of fantastic, hearing the likes of Don Letts, Gilles Peterson, Gideon Coe, Tom Ravenscroft (all BBC 6Music), Dom Servini (Wah Wah 45's), Lefto & Zeb Samuels all spinning tunes on regular rotation.

The A-side 'Promotion' manages to seamlessly combine a wide variety of styles and musical influences into one effortlessly understated track. It opens with the type of squelchy bassline that you might expect to hear on a Flying Lotus or Spacek track, before introducing a messy breakbeat that Ash delivers with finesse. These two elements are reinforced by off-beat guitar chords and a high-pitched synth line that provide that all important hook.

Maintaining the 'live' sound that Ash has been honing during the development of his second album (live trio coming soon), B-side 'Truffles' is a laid-back, hazy and introspective three minute jam that is a masterpiece of a recording.

As a DJ, Ash has long performed in support of prestigious acts including The Specials, Lee Scratch Perry, and David Rodigan, but now signed to Deep Heads, his productions are receiving the increased attention they deserve. 'Augmented 7th', received staunch radio support from BBC 6 Music, with air time play from the likes of Gideon Coe, Gilles Peterson Don Letts and Tom Robinson whilst also receiving glowing praises from publications such as Clash Magazine, Okayplayer, XLR8R & Konbini
